PROPSAL.
BY MRS. ELLEN M. MITCHELL.
" Did hl' dark eyes tup lo-tolne " '
' Aa n trod the maty dance,
With love thatelione divine?
. Did I blush beneath his glance? '
My heart beat wild with rapture sweet,
My soul seemed in a trance.
Did they missus from the room
When we stole out 'neath the sky, '
In the dim night's dusky gloom,
Where the dewy reses sigh?
In all that gaily, brilliant throng,
Was one so blest as I?
Did I lend a willing ear
While he whisperod soft and low?
Did 1 hold the weoer dear?
Do pou think I answered "No?"
The earth was flushid with beauty rare,
Life wore a golden glow.
Was it heart that spoke to heart,
Was it soul that clung to soul?
Is there aught our lives to part,
Can the waves between us roll?
The love we cherish, full of strength,
Will spurn all weak oontrol.
We Lave tasted bliss supreme;
Shall we feel the piercing blast,
When we wake from this bright dream
To a world of woe at last?
No shadow dark can dim our faith,
No grief blot out the past.
He has claimed me all his own,
We are bound by solemn ties;
When this first sweet joy has flown
Do you think a oloud will rise?
True love will make our happy home ' ' '
An earthly paradise. '
Political.
SOLILOQUY OF A RADICAL
—NO. 2.
WILL, lm iUHual, 1 suppose.
But what itill bothers me is how I oame
to be Radical. I'm not Democrat
and woaldn t like to claim to be ao Af
rican, boo 1 suppose there s oo plaoe left
tor me bat to be a itadical.
Bat still I wonder Loir I came to be a
Radioal ? Let me see. I was trying to
ascertain a lew usvs ago wbo I followed
that caused me to become a Radioal. and
since then I have been prayerfully medi
tating over the subject, and bogin to
doubt whether I am really a Radioal or
not.
I oertainlj never followed these impu
dent Black fellows wbo met at Uolum
bus a few days Bince, and resolved that
negro suffrage is a 'foregone conclusion.'
It may be a loregone Radios! conolu
sion ; but I can't tee matters in that
light. I feel a little pride iu permitting
the people to do what they like in the
matter, and as the negroes forcing negro
suffrage by Congressional action or in
'another way,' it rather itira tip the Irish
blood in me. especially the 'another
ay.' If this is Radicalism and I'm one,
really wonder how I oame to be a Rad
ioal? But, by the war, I talked to
neighbor Brown yesterday, and we are
friends again. I wonder how I oame to
call him a Copperhead ? I called on him
and told him my errand.
'Yes he replied, 'neighbor Jones,
we'll talk the matter over ; but before we
proceed let us pray over the matter.' ,
And so we knelt down and be prayed:
'Meroiful Father, oreator and dispenser of
things, Thy works are beyond the
comprehension of man; Tby power and
glory infinite and eternal. . In Thy wis
dom Thou hast oreated the White man
and the Blaok man, and have given to
eaoh a mental and pbysioal struoture pe
culiar to himself, and hast plaoed both
here upon the earth for wise and aoble
purposes.' 'Thou hast made them nn
like, and yet hast not seen proper to dis
close why Thou hast so created them.'
it Thy will shall make oven that
which Thou hastoreated uneven?' 'Is
Thy will that we ahall make equal that
whioh Tb.oa.haBt created unequal ?' 'Is
wiser for us to follow the inequalities
Thy creation than to establish new
laws tending to a reoonstruotion of , the
laws governing Thy created beings ?'.
l answered involuatarily, JNay.' and
mentally inquired 'How I oame to be a
Radioal?' -
'But, he proceeded 'we bless The for
renewed blessings ; we bless Thee that
Diokbiungsand revelings of thepaBt
being- retraoted and forgiven, and
humbly ask Thy guidance whilst passing
in
of
if
throtghthe wilderness through whioh
we are wandering, and that Thou wilt
renew our faith, inspire our hope, and
create within us that hviocr faith that
will tnable us to again draw together as
one people the children and Followers
of tbe tree and living God.'
! I !jn voluntarily responded 'Amen,'
aui , neighbor Brown and X arose. I
grasped his hand, and we talked Wil I
felt as if I were a Whig amio. I felt
really ashamed that I had ever been ao
impudent as to call him a Copperhead,
and told him so. His five noble, manly
sons gathered about us as we conversed.
William, his eldest, was especially inter
eeted. We disoussed the whole subiect.
I took it for granted that I was a Radir
ctl, and neighbor Brown appeared proud
x using oanea a isemoorat. lie argued
for the Constitution and Government of
the fathers, whilst I portrayed the bean,
ties of Radicalism. He got the better
cf me, and I stopped to take breath and
consider how I oame to be a Radical.
He took advantage in this crisis of the
affair and said. 'Now. you teo. neigh
bar Jones, when the fathers left this Gov-
eminent to us as a sacred heritage, they
give it in its purity to us and our pos
terity.' 'ion propose to surrender a
portion ot it to another and inferior
race.' Here are my five boys and faith
ful sons they are and you propose to
divide thair portion of this gift from our
fathers with the Black raoe.' 'And for
whit V 'You say upon principles of
justice.' 'Well, would not jastioe dio
tate that we should divide with the whole
of Africa aod send for the balance of
our benefioiaries in order to have them
enjoy their portion of the bread of lib
ertj and the oup of equality ?'
'ibis was a poser, and I really wood
ered how I oame to be a Radioal : that
comprehended in my world-wide benev
oleoco so small a part of dear old Af
rica.
The bos were pleased, and I felt
una . onagrmea ; but . remained snoot
whilst Brown continued: . v
'.mow, neighbor Jones, yon propose
T V
that my sons aod tbe Negroes shall be
equal: that old Tom's sons aod mine
shall meet upon one common platform,
and all be JMegroes or all Whites, just
as toe superiority ot one raoe shall pre
vail over the other, and if neither pre
vans, then to draw up and draw down
until an equalibrium shall be seoured be
tween them.'
I pulled up, but Brown's lever proved
too ouch for me, and I began to see how
oame to be a Aadioal. 'xt at he pro
ceedod, 'you may not feel as deeply in
terested as myrelr,' at the same time
looking toward his son William.
I knew what he meant. William and
my daughter were betrothed, and soon
he would be of my household. I looked
fardswn into the future. My children
arose before me. My poor boys were
again near me, but not ia moral form,
but visitors irom tnat final resting plaoe
whert all true soldiers aro secure from
the dangers of the battle-field, I lived
my past life over again, All were silent.
I looked upon Brown as he extended
to me, Willi an nonest countenanoe, a
arge book and a small one, and remark
ing is he oonveyed them to me :
Wall, neighbor Jones, we have oan
vassed this . matter tolerably thoroughly
to-day. and here are the guiders to my
faith and hope for myself, my family and
my -country.
1 took tne old books with a reluctant
Hand. .
I knew what they were without look-
ing. - 'i he iiibU and the Constitution,
and as I looked upon them and received
his urgent request that I would read them
order to better understand the reasons
his faith. I wondered if they would
leach me how I oame to be a Radioal ?
We separated, neighbor Brown blessing
me as I went: I must confess. I felt as
it required us both to make a Copper
head now. That is, I felt as if he was
lead and I was copper. Copper, dark,
yellowish, Radioal. It looks as if there
was some eopper about that. But it is
hardly possible I'm a Radioal and Cop
perhead, too. -Let me see, a Copperhead
bites. The bite is poison. Well, I have
been real bitish for the last few years,
and I fear did something towards pois?
oning sooiety. .
But 1 must oonsider. There are those
two old books, I must pray over them
and consult my Radioal friends, and if
I'm wrong, wouldn t It be humiliating to
say I'll vote with the Demootats? No,
I'm a Radioal, and if I suooeed in find
ing out how I oame to be a Radical per
haps I will feel all right yet. -
Negro '. Suffrage I Btraoge words.
Never heard of them until here lately.
I wonder who originated the idea.
There, now, I have an idea. If I could
find out that fellow he oould doubtless
explain to me how I oame to be a Radii

be
ly go down right. It's strong. let if
I'm a Radioal I murt muster courage aod
take the dose. Brown said I would go
on until it oome to this and I would
gobble it down. I told him he lied.
lint 1 guess I was mistaken At least
I'm gobbling, and if my gobbler doen
sicken I reckon I'll succeed. If I should
I suppose I'll understand how I oame
to be a Radioal. . Untinheo, I will ta.k

[From the London Times, 2.]
The Murder of Maximilian.
The unhappy Emperor has ehared the
late ot his cbiet associates, and the re
nowned ivepublio of Menoo is stained
with the blood of the dethroned Empe
ror.
That blood will cling to the nation as
well as to tbe man who has ordered it to
.bed. Joareiis but a type of the
raoe wmcn, since tne sovereignty of Spain
was withdrawn, has ever alternated be
.... .. - -
tween despotism and aoarohy, and is now
once more free to follow its half-savage
instincts. Like the great tnaioritv of
those who are called Mexioan, Juarez is
ao Indian, witnout. it is said, any admix
ture of European blood. He has shown
that he has energy, oourage, and perse
veranoe, dui 10 iook to mm tor mercy,
gentleness, regard for a fallen enemy, and
such like virtues, whether Christian or
chivalrous, would be futile. He belong
to a party whose usual reoklessness and
disregard of human life have been
heightened to the extreme of savagery
by the conflict of the last four vears.
by t
The party again represent a barbarous
population inclined to look upon moder
ation and mercy sa signs or weakness
l. he worst traits of. the Uexioao char
aoter have been exhibited in this matter
and it will impress on the new ' Govern-
meot a character which will not easily
oe onaoged. as long as we can remem
ber, Mexico has been a land of blood.
The rival factions have never shrunk
from exeroising the utmost rights of vic
tory. If tbe goods and the liberty of
peaoeful residents were endangered by
the struggles of unscrupulous partisans,
lucDu uiu, at least, bimab tueir lives on
the event, and when they failed, under
went the last extremity of war. One
might have hoped that the progress of
enlightenment and humanity might have
extended oven to Mexico, and that the
republican leaders, taught by the events
of the last few years, would have en
deavored to introduce a milder politioal
code. They have had not only the re-
moostranoe of Europe, but the advice of
the United states, isvery one is agreed
tnat suon a poimoai state as existed be
fore the invasion of the Frenoh, oan not
permanently endure. They must be
aware that these inoessant disturbances
and the desire of so many to gratify their
ambition at the cost of the public peace,
had their organ in the reoklessness and
demoralization of sooiety, and that these
oould only be cured by abandoning the
evil traditions of politioal vengeanco.
Bat if they had at the first opportunity
revived all that was worst in their form
er oonduot, we cxpeot their Government
will go from bad to worse until it falls
anew into anarohy, and compels another
intervention. Europe tt not likely again
interfere, but a time must come when
the United Siatet will have to deal with
Government which tlew Maximilian
to
A Smart Trick. The amendment
proposed by the Radioals to the Consti
tution of OhiOj while it allows negroes to
vote, disfranchises thousands of soldiers
who left the servioe after the war was
over but before they were properly mus
tered out. They are designated as do
serters. In order to obviate the conse
quences of this amendment, Ashley, of
Toledo District, has introduced a bill
into the House oi Representatives whioh
declares that those who voluntarily en
isted in the army or navy, aod served
during the war, but who left the servioe
after the oessation of hostilities without
having been mustered out, shall not be
deemed deserters.
So before the amendment Is voted upa
the Radioals are endeavoring to hedge
against its natural effeots A constitu
tional defeot is to be oured by an aot of
Congress. This sort of Legislation
snows now entirely. congress is used as
instrument to keep the Radioals in

Select Good Seeds There is no
way in whioh improvement in agriouU
ture oan be made in so cheap a way as
in the judicious selection of seods. A
superior kind of seed can often be ob
Ltaioed for an aore of land at a email e
pense perhaps at the extra cost of only
fifty cents and it may be the means of
adding ten per cent, to the crop, whioh
may amount to several dollars on an aore,
Farmers can often improve their seed by
purchase er exchange, and every one has
it in his power to make improvements ia
this way by a good selection: If an ear
lier kind be desirable,' then select seed
from the earliest tbat ripens. If you
would have larger produots, then select
seed from tbe largest. In this way al
most everything oan be improved. Some
cultivators will eelcot their best beans,
peas, and other vegetables for eating, and
take what is left for seed.. In this way
he oan depend on deterioration
At a small expense, tbe Boost teed,
